Achievements and current work
The 22 strategic actions to manage recreation across the New Forest that were agreed in 2019 now provide a clear mandate and focus for multiple strands of work.
Here we highlight some successes, listed against the seven main objectives. A more detailed list of achievements since 2019 (listed against each of the 22 actions) is periodically reviewed by the Recreation Management Strategy Advisory Group.
Objective 1: Convey the things that make the New Forest National Park special to both visitors and local people in more consistent and effective ways, so that they enjoy it, come to value it, want to care for it and do not inadvertently damage it.
Objective 7: Regularly review progress against agreed recreation management actions and adapt forward plans to protect the special qualities of the National Park and enable people to enjoy and benefit from them.
